Description : This new edition of a bestselling textbook (over 185,000 copies sold) draws on key biblical texts to demonstrate that worship is the ultimate goal of the church and that proper worship fuels missionary outreach. John Piper offers a biblical defense of God's supremacy in all things, providing readers with a sound theological foundation for missions. He examines whether Jesus is the only way to salvation and issues a passionate plea for God-centeredness in the missionary enterprise, seeking to define the scope of the task and the means for reaching "all nations." The third edition has been revised and expanded throughout and includes new material on the prosperity gospel. The book is essential reading for those involved in or preparing for missions work. It also offers enlightenment for college and seminary students, pastors, youth workers, campus ministers, and all who want to connect their labors to God's global purposes.

Description : Jesus' Great Commission is one of the key pillars of the church's evangelistic work and has been the guiding principle for missionaries throughout church history. In 40 Questions about the Great Commission, scholars Daniel Akin, Benjamin Merkle, and George Robinson unpack the meaning, history, theology, and practical applications of Jesus' command to go and make disciples. Ideal for personal or group study, this volume will reignite your passion for evangelism while answering key questions like:

  • Where do we stand in relation to fulfilling the Great Commission?
  • How do baptism and teaching relate to the Great Commission?
  • What is the meaning of "I am with you always, to the end of the age"?
  • How does the Old Testament relate to the Great Commission?
  • What is the special contribution of each Gospel's version of the Great Commission?
  • What is the responsibility of the local church to the Great Commission?
  • What are some mobilization resources that can help churches and individuals to become Great Commission focused?
Other highlights include an overview of some of the great evangelists and missionaries in church history, and a collection of notable quotations on the Great Commission, ideal for teaching and preaching.

"40 Questions About the Great Commission is an indispensable text for any pastor, professor, or student who cares about the Christian mission. In it, a biblical scholar, missiologist, and seminary president join forces to answer every question you've ever asked—or never asked—about our Lord’s parting commission to his disciples. Substantive, lucid, and compelling." --Bruce Ashford, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

"The church has one job. It is called the Great Commission. Every Christian soldier should know the who, the what, the why, and the where of the marching orders left by our Lord and Commander-in-Chief, and this book does just that in an engaging and encouraging way. Read it and then get on with it!" --James Merritt, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"This book is a succinct and at the same time wide-ranging exposition of the commission of Jesus given to the disciples and thus to the church to proclaim the gospel far and wide. The authors elucidate the meaning of key passages in Scripture and thus present the geographical scope, the theological content, and important historical parameters of the mission of the church. This book deserves to be read by every Christian believer committed to the glory of God in all the world and to the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ." --Eckhard J. Schnabel, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

Description : Although a large majority of believers agree that they should share their faith, most report that they, in fact, do not. That's not really all that surprising given today's pluralistic cultural setting. But maybe this same culture's longing for transcendence, community, and a place to call home points to a backstory that makes sense of it all. If such a narrative exists, it deserves a hearing, and those who know and live this story have both the responsibility and privilege of sharing its message of hope. The narrative of the Bible tells just such a story where God's purpose from the beginning has been to dwell--or tabernacle--in the midst of the people he has created. This book traces the theme of God's tabernacling presence across Scripture, reading the story afresh through a missional lens in order to gain insights for mission and gospel witness. The hope is that readers will awaken wide-eyed to the wonder of God's tabernacling presence in our midst, that we will live in such a way that others recognize this reality, and that we will boldly and joyfully share the good news of Jesus under the direction and power of his indwelling Spirit.

Description : The practice of Christian hospitality reaches back to the early centuries of Christian life as well as deep into Jewish history, life, and Scripture. This practice is alive today in Christian churches and in parachurch organizations within the United States, but new contextual realities--in particular twenty-first-century global migration patterns--have altered the conditions under which hospitality is practiced. The reality of migration and its effect on human lives disrupts static conceptions of hospitality and challenges ecclesial communities toward contextual appropriation of hospitality practice. This volume explores Christian hospitality practice in light of twenty-first-century U.S. Latino/a migration, and it develops the notion of a journeying hospitality of accompaniment with and among persons migrating, which fosters deeper relationships and formation. The shifting identities of persons "on the move" challenge assumptions about what it means to welcome another in hospitality and, ultimately, what it means to be church from within these new relationships. In turn, the new conceptions and expressions of hospitality offered in this book press how the nature and mission of the church will be oriented toward new ecclesial patterns and alternative forms of residing on earth.

Not illustrated. 1876 edition. Excerpt: ... DISOBEDIENCE. I Find in the 4th verse of the 8th chapter of 1st Samuel: "Nevertheless, the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel"--or you might say the voice of God, for God is speaking through Samuel--" and they said, We will have a king over us." I want to call your attention to this disobedience and the consequence. For between four and five hundred years God had been their king, and when they obeyed His voice and did what He told them to do, none of the nations were able to stand before them. They had never been degraded while they were walking in God's sight and obeying His voice, but now they got tired of God. They wanted to cast off His yoke. They wanted a king like the nations around them had, who might lead their armies and make them as imposing and splendid as the nations around them were. When God brought them into that land He told them they should not have chariots of iron, and should not be trusting in horsemen, and in great armies, but He would be their defence; He would be their shield; He would protect them, if they would only look to Him and trust Him. But no. They have their eyes on the nations around them, and they come to the old prophet Samuel, who has grown very old and is about to retire from office, and they said, "We want a king." And Samuel was very much displeased, heart-broken, and he took his trouble to the Lord, as we all of us ought always to do, and the Lord says: "Well, now, Samuel, it is not you that they have rejected, but Me. Don't take it so to heart, but protest solemnly against it. Tell them the consequences, and then, if they insist upon it, I will give them a king." He said this very often, as mothers deal with their children. They let them have something that they know will bring them into...

I was equally confounded at the sight of so many pigmies, for such I took them to be, after having so long accustomed mine eyes to the monstrous objects I had left. But the captain, Mr. Thomas Wilcocks, an honest, worthy Shropshire man, observing I was ready to faiat, took me into his cabin, gave me a cordial to comfort me, and made me turn in upon his own bed, advising me to take a little rest, of which I had great need. Before I went to sleep I gave him to understand that I had some valuable furniture in my box, too good to be lost: a fine hammock, a handsome field-bed, two chairs, a table, and a cabinet; that my closet was hung on all sides, or rather quilted, with silk and cotton; that if he would let one of the crew bring my closet into his cabin, I would open it there before him, and show him my goods. The captain, hearing me utter these absurdities, concluded I was raving: however (I suppose to pacify me) he promised to give orders as I desired, and going upon deck, sent some of his men down into my closet, whence (as I afterwards found) they drew up all my goods and stripped off the quilting; but the chairs, cabinet, and bedstead, being screwed to the floor, were much damaged by the ignorance of the seamen, who tore them up by force. Then they knocked off some of the boards for the use of the ship, and when they had got all they had a mind for, let the hull drop into the sea, which, by reason of many breaches made in the bottom and sides, sunk outright. And, indeed, I was glad not to have been a spectator of the havoc they made; because I am confident it would have sensibly touched me, by bringing former passages into my mind which I would...

Description : God loves us and has a unique blueprint for our life--but it's up to us to find it and live it out. Mingling contemporary stories and biblical anecdotes with practical advice, Silvoso shows how God intervenes in human affairs today to transform people and nations. He also shares five critical paradigms for transformation that are pivotal for change: Discipling Nations, Reclaiming the Marketplace, Looking at Work as Worship, Becoming Salt and Light, and Eliminating Poverty. In these pages, readers will find extraordinary stories about the power of God working through those who discovered their specific purpose. Then they'll be challenged to transform themselves and, by doing so, transform their families, schools, businesses, and nations. Silvoso encourages readers to aim high, knowing that God has entrusted them with great things. "God sees you as a nation transformer," says Silvoso. He has faith in you!

My Sons--or I may almost say my grand-sons, so very very much older am I than you--I am glad to come here to-day, because everywhere in the boys of a country lies that country's future, the possibilities of its gradual rising in the scale of nations and becoming of use among the peoples of the world. The older amongst you, those who have been learning for years and who are now coming near the time that they will have finished their book-learning of the School, and begin studying life and working in life in the outer world; those of you who are young men, you should be thinking carefully of what you mean to make of your lifewhat you are going to do with it; what sort of work you will take up; what ideal you will put before yourself. Now what does that word 'ideal' mean? You speak sometimes of idea or thought--that which is produced by your mind. You are" thinking constantly, and that which you think is called an 'idea'. The 'ideal' means a fixed idea, an idea that does not change, does not alter, but remains always the same. Your thoughts are continually changing. Now you are thinking of study, then of play; now of your home, then of your school or college. These are changing thoughts; but the thought that always remains with you, fixed steadily, that is part of what is called an ' ideal'. It is not only this, but ie a fixed idea which governs conduct, according to which the character is gradually shaped. Now everyone of you ought to hare an ideal --a fixed idea which shall govern your conduct. You should make for yourselves this ideal, and let ine tell you some of the things that ought to make a part of it. First of all, love of your religion. That must be a fixed idea in the mind. By...
